Here's the last of the two surviving Roller Derby games from 1949. Next, I shall start uploading the games that survive from 1950.

Very cool! We need more sports in this section! Admittedly most sports telecasts of the "early television era" (pre-August 1956) are lost, but hell, they made so many of them that a surprising number still survive!

Yeah, these are way before my time too. I'm only 22-years-old. I have some games from that time period, but I will be uploading these in order. So the late 60s and early 70s will come last.

Pretty cool,thanks for uploading.These are from a little before I was around,but watched Roller Derby pretty regularly,in late 60s and 1970s.Think they usually showed San Francisco Bay Area Bombers,against whoever their adversaries were.
